OctPoWriMo 2015 Day 18:    prompt:  Things aren’t always what they seem

.
Today’s prompt we’re going to add a little mystery to our lives. Look around you, whether it’s a physical object or people in general in your life. Chose something or someone and give them a double life. Ex: I just book a graphic novel where the woman is a turn of the century housewife during the day, but at night she’s an assassin. Maybe your tomato has the secret life of an apple. Never know what’s happening in the crisper when the drawer is closed. Get creative and have fun with it.

My Response to the prompt:

=====

 

Things aren’t always what they seem

illusions that come with mysteries
facts that have a spin to them
unseen to the human eye.
.

Cherokee tribe of Native Americans, said

“Don’t judge a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes”

.
and Harper Lee. To Kill a Mockingbird :

.
“You never really know a man

until you understand things from his point of view,

until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.”

.
Think of the quote before being the critic:
walk in their shoes.
A grieving person may still be sad
even when laughing and sharing a joke.
A widower spoke and said, “Don’t tell
me you know how I feel unless you’ve
lost a spouse”.
.
An only child never knows the bliss
of a sibling who had the same parents
at the same time.of the parents life.
(My brother and I are “only children”
~ six years apart)
.
One person’s comfort food,
may seem odd or inedible to another…
have you tried fried insects, jelly fish,
pickled octopus, made rose hip jam or
dandelion greens in your smoothie ?
.

Things aren’t always what they seem
illusions that come with mysteries
facts that have a spin to them
unseen to the human eye.

OctPoWriMo 2015 Day 10 Go Wild

.

Too tame
too obedient
no wild child in me.
.
Years pass
wonder where the wild child
went.
.
What in me
locked wild away
where can it be
.
Go Wild
Go West
Go some where.
.
Wild is found
in Thunderdrums
rocking music of my youth
.
Wild was there
just didn’t see
what others did
.
Back in the day
it was thought that
80 was the wild time
.
The time to speak
ones mind
and people would laugh
.
Why wait til bewildered
unable to enjoy
the reactions
.
Wild
my rock’n roll
bluesy jazz
.
Drummin’ to the beat
stompin’ with the joy
Wild ~ make your own Wild
.
Going Wild
to my own beat
Going Wild ~ laughing all the way.

OctPoWriMo 2015 Day 9
Prompt: color/nonet poem

.

A Moon Garden
.
romantic white blooms and silver leaves
moonlight garden at midnight glows
Little Park just down the street
benches of white granite
placed just right to pause
white dahlias
moon flowers
mindful
dreams
.
===
In poetry,
a nonet is a nine line poem,
with the first line containing nine syllables,
the next eight,
so on until the last line has one syllable.

OctPoWriMo 2015….Day 7

What I wish was different

if wishes were horses
my father’d say
then beggars would ride
If wishes of old ladies were like the breeze
I’d feel as young as my mind says I am
.
the bittersweet of aging
the loss of function for myself,
the loss of friends I thought would always be there
wishing they could be here just a day longer
fond memories to cherish to the end of my day
.
the knowledge I have now…
the tasks of growing and living wisely
I wish I’d known much sooner
not to be ~ as others say
good and otherwise serve me well
.

if wishes were horses,
we’d all ride into the sunset as one
daisy chains in our hair
singing about the changing times
saving the earth and its people

years
twilight
come too soon
like on cats paws
silent ~ unannounced
elderly often on minds
young we know not the number
we learn not to waste the hours now
the value of hours that fly quickly
with well spent time ~ the value of our lives
